WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is keeping up his congressional charm offensive, with a second dinner with Senate Republicans planned for next month.
Obama dined with a dozen GOP senators earlier this month at a hotel near the White House. The dinner was aimed in part at seeing whether the parties could restart talks on a grand budget bargain that has eluded them throughout Obama's presidency.
The president arranged next month's dinner during a phone call with Georgia's Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson. The senator is putting together the guest list for the April 10 outing.
Obama followed up his first dinner with three straight days of visits to Capitol Hill for separate meetings with Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate.
